. . "A Taste of Hot Lead" (1969) is one of the last "roughie" sexploitation flicks of the 1960s. Before mainstream porn hit theaters in the '70s, these films were cranked out for adults-only grindhouse venues. A typically nasty, misogynistic, sex-and-violence crime drama inspired by the hard-boiled film noir of the '40s and '50s. Directed by William Rotsler who also made "The Girl with the Hungry Eyes" and "The Agony of Love".
